Friends Day – September 11

There are lots of reasons to visit Singing Oaks on Friends Day. I know Ross will bring a great sermon from God’s word. The worship in song will be encouraging and up-lifting. There will be great Bible classes, and don’t forget the tasty food at the pot-luck after the second service. But one of the most important reasons to come on Friends Day is Friendship!

This world can be a lonely place because most of us tend to drift toward isolation. It’s usually the easiest path because true friendship and community is difficult. Ralph Waldo Emerson alluded to this in his statement, “Every man alone is sincere. At the entrance of a second hypocrisy begins.” We are selfish! We live in a fallen world and relationships are hard. They were hard for Jesus and his group and for Paul and his co-workers. But we totally need friends. It is a part of who God is and must be a part of who we are. It is who we try to be at Singing Oaks.

We’re not perfect but you can find friends here, friends that will enrich your life and help you stay on track. I have been here a long time and have friends on different levels who care for, encourage, rebuke and help me in time of need. I find them throughout the church. I have found them more recently in small groups of different sorts. It is so important to be in some type of smaller group where you can find community in friendships that are accepting and forgiving. There is joy and celebration in this type of community.

At this church you can find friendship, but the most important friend found among us is Jesus. He is always here and so wants to be your friend.

Welcome to Singing Oaks on Friends Day. I know you will be glad you came!

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work:
If one falls down, his friend can help him up… Ecclesiastes 4:9-10a
